The authors acknowledge the assistance of Myra Cheng and Sam Lebovic in finalising this report.

The Law and Justice Foundation of NSW would like to thank the many individuals, organisations and agencies with whom we have consulted during this project.

The Foundation would especially like to thank the many older people who responded to our invitation to contact the Foundation to express their views, and who participated in focus groups. Their preparedness to share often extremely personal experiences of the legal system has been a significant contribution to this project.

The Foundation is also grateful to the following people for commenting on an earlier draft of the report:

  • Sue Field, University of Western Sydney
  • Professor Jeff Giddings, Director of Clinical Legal Education, Faculty of Law, Griffith University, Queensland
  • Professor Terry Carney, Director of Research, Faculty of Law, University of Sydney.
